Stew learned a number of things regarding client service over his more than 35 years practicing law. Most importantly, he’s found clients want practical solutions and don’t want to be bogged down with making complicated decisions without the advice from someone they trust.
Many clients refer to Stew as their “trusted advisor.” He has broad-based experience in buying and selling businesses as well as general business transactions.
Having previously served as in-house counsel for a bank and a bank holding company with more than $1 billion in assets, Stew understands the issues faced by banks and other financial institutions. He provides advice and counsel to clients regarding secured loan documentation, workouts of problem loans, regulatory and compliance matters, merger and acquisition transactions involving banks and bank holding companies, and branch acquisition and sale transactions.
For the firm’s general business clients, Stew works on a variety of general corporate matters. He advises on business organization and start-up issues, negotiates commercial contracts, and assists business organizations and their owners with mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. Stew’s experience covers a wide variety of industries.
Examples of recent transactions include:
A native Wisconsinite, when not practicing law Stew can be found enjoying outdoor recreational activities and rooting on his beloved Wisconsin Badgers or Green Bay Packers.
